    max's kids were cute, i actually liked the costumes they put them in - casual, stylish and, shocking considering how tactlessly they are normally dressed for competition, not too revealing. the girls weren't too made up - also a surprise. if anything the boys seem a little poorly-trained in that they appear to have completely disregarded the concept that the point of latin dancing is to showcase the woman.

    I think Lisa would have killed herself if she and Louis hadn't made it through...

    Agree totally. I loved watching the students, but I felt like telling the boys to "Pull it back, Cassie."

    for sure.

    her psychological... issues are a perfect match for Louis and the patented Thinking Dutchman Approach.

    there are few things more distasteful than a teenaged boy with his shirt open to his waist, half a bottle of hair product and... multiple necklaces.

    I said (posted) it last night, but it's worth repeating: Edyta looks amazing. That dress is gorgeous and looks gorgeous on her.

    One thing that is more distasteful is the 70-year old man at my first comp "with his shirt open to his waist, half a bottle of hair product and... multiple necklaces".

    I am not making this up. I wish I were.

    for more questionable dancing, change over to NBC, showing the opening ceremonies at the olympics as we speak. a little tango interlude right now...

    hahahahahhh *snort*


    i would like to be on that show. i do a mean cow. especially in the bolero.

    actually you could re-record "bamboleo" with "cowbolero" and have a hit on your hands.

    Cows are sensitive to the paso doble, however.

    so let's see, back to the show.

    george and edyta, as heidi klum would say, are out. the final stage for conflict is set: drew, stacey and lisa.

    personally i think stacey should be disqualified just by virtue of association with anybody connected to the Dirty Dancing recreation. some ballroom dancers have jazz chops but TD did not evidence any in that number. it seemed to be a very close approximation of the original choreography, which was tailored for a very different type of dancer with a very different body - just didn't work for T.

    OK, still watching the results show here but I have a question for you "longer" time dancers. Well at least those of you who have been dancing for more than 3 months.

    With Max's kids the boys/guys seemed to be really working the room. To the point that they just about out danced their partners. My daughter even commented on it.

    Was it just our still untrained eyes or were the guys really hyped and the girls a little off?

    Just wondering, they were really good, don't get me wrong. Just curious.
    Thanks

    like i said, i thought the boys were hamming a bit too much. they were certainly very strong dancers - it's obvious who gets the most attention at that school - but their job is to put the lady in the spotlight, and they didn't do that. to be fair, they were (as always) dancing somebody else's choreography, so that's part of it.

    Thanks Alemana,
